  • - JOEL OSTEEN: WELL,
  • 00:00:11.160 --> 00:00:12.000
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:12.270
  • IT'S A JOY TO COME INTO YOUR
  • 00:00:12.270 --> 00:00:13.280
  • HOMES AND IF YOU'RE EVER IN
  • 00:00:13.280 --> 00:00:15.150
  • OUR AREA, PLEASE STOP BY AND
  • 00:00:15.150 --> 00:00:17.050
  • BE A PART OF ONE OF OUR
  • 00:00:17.050 --> 00:00:18.050
  • SERVICES.
  • 00:00:18.050 --> 00:00:19.000
  • I PROMISE YOU, WE'LL MAKE YOU
  • 00:00:19.000 --> 00:00:20.140
  • FEEL RIGHT AT HOME.
  • 00:00:20.140 --> 00:00:22.160
  • I LIKE TO START WITH
  • 00:00:22.160 --> 00:00:23.040
  • SOMETHING FUNNY AND ONE DAY,
  • 00:00:23.040 --> 00:00:24.250
  • ADAM WAS FEELING VERY LONELY.
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:27.040
  • GOD SAID, "ADAM, I'M GOING TO
  • 00:00:27.040 --> 00:00:28.130
  • MAKE YOU A COMPANION.
  • 00:00:28.130 --> 00:00:30.050
  • IT'S GOING TO BE CALLED A
  • 00:00:30.050 --> 00:00:31.120
  • WOMAN.
  • 00:00:31.120 --> 00:00:32.130
  • THIS PERSON WILL COOK FOR
  • 00:00:32.130 --> 00:00:33.280
  • YOU, AND WASH YOUR CLOTHES,
  • 00:00:33.280 --> 00:00:36.100
  • SHE WILL BEAR YOU CHILDREN
  • 00:00:36.100 --> 00:00:38.060
  • AND NEVER ASK YOU TO GET UP
  • 00:00:38.060 --> 00:00:39.110
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
  • 00:00:39.110 --> 00:00:40.270
  • SHE WILL ALWAYS AGREE WITH
  • 00:00:40.270 --> 00:00:42.020
  • YOU AND IF YOU HAVE A
  • 00:00:42.020 --> 00:00:43.150
  • DISAGREEMENT, SHE'LL BE THE
  • 00:00:43.150 --> 00:00:44.280
  • FIRST TO ADMIT SHE WAS
  • 00:00:44.280 --> 00:00:46.050
  • WRONG."
  • 00:00:46.050 --> 00:00:47.130
  • ADAM SAID, "WOW, GOD, WHAT
  • 00:00:47.130 --> 00:00:48.090
  • WILL A WOMAN LIKE THIS
  • 00:00:48.090 --> 00:00:49.260
  • COST?"
  • 00:00:49.260 --> 00:00:51.030
  • GOD SAID, "AN ARM AND A
  • 00:00:51.030 --> 00:00:52.020
  • LEG."
  • 00:00:52.020 --> 00:00:53.250
  • ADAM SAID, "WHAT CAN I GET
  • 00:00:53.250 --> 00:00:54.250
  • FOR A RIB?"
  • 00:00:54.250 --> 00:00:55.180
  • AND THE REST IS HISTORY.
  • 00:00:55.270 --> 00:00:58.270
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT,
  • 00:00:58.270 --> 00:00:59.230
  • "THIS IS MY BIBLE, I AM WHAT
  • 00:00:59.230 --> 00:01:01.280
  • IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:01.280 --> 00:01:03.100
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:03.100 --> 00:01:04.190
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:05.260
  • DO.
  • 00:01:05.260 --> 00:01:06.240
  • TODAY, I WILL BE TAUGHT THE
  • 00:01:06.240 --> 00:01:08.050
  • WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:08.050 --> 00:01:09.110
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS, MY MIND IS
  • 00:01:09.110 --> 00:01:11.100
  • ALERT, MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:13.160
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME IN
  • 00:01:13.160 --> 00:01:15.030
  • JESUS' NAME."
  • 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:17.070
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:17.070 --> 00:01:19.080
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:20.040
  • ABOUT SLEEP ON.
  • 00:01:20.040 --> 00:01:22.090
  • IT'S EASY TO LIVE FRUSTRATED
  • 00:01:22.090 --> 00:01:23.200
  • BECAUSE SOMEBODY'S NOT DOING
  • 00:01:23.200 --> 00:01:25.110
  • WHAT WE WANT, OR DISCOURAGED
  • 00:01:25.110 --> 00:01:27.010
  • BECAUSE OF A DISAPPOINTMENT,
  • 00:01:27.010 --> 00:01:29.030
  • UPSET BECAUSE A DREAM HASN'T
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:30.130
  • COME TO PASS BUT I'VE LEARNED
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:32.070
  • GOD DOESN'T REMOVE EVERY
  • 00:01:32.070 --> 00:01:34.040
  • FRUSTRATION.
  • 00:01:34.040 --> 00:01:35.200
  • HE DOESN'T CHANGE EVERY
  • 00:01:35.200 --> 00:01:36.250
  • PERSON WE DON'T LIKE AND TAKE
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:38.240
  • AWAY EVERYTHING THAT'S
  • 00:01:38.240 --> 00:01:40.000
  • BOTHERING US.
  • 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:41.060
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "BE STILL
  • 00:01:41.060 --> 00:01:43.150
  • AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD."
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:45.190
  • THIS IMPLIES IF WE'RE NOT
  • 00:01:45.190 --> 00:01:47.120
  • STILL, IF WE'RE UPSET,
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:49.110
  • WORRIED, FRUSTRATED, WE'RE
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:51.160
  • NOT GOING TO KNOW THAT HE IS
  • 00:01:51.160 --> 00:01:53.010
  • GOD.
  • 00:01:53.010 --> 00:01:54.020
  • MOST OF THE TIMES I'M
  • 00:01:54.020 --> 00:01:55.240
  • FRUSTRATED, I'M TRYING TO
  • 00:01:55.240 --> 00:01:57.230
  • CHANGE THINGS THAT ONLY GOD
  • 00:01:57.230 --> 00:01:59.170
  • CAN CHANGE.
  • 00:01:59.170 --> 00:02:00.230
  • I'M TRYING TO BE GOD AND FIX
  • 00:02:00.230 --> 00:02:03.020
  • THINGS THAT I CAN'T CONTROL.
  • 00:02:03.020 --> 00:02:05.080
  • YOU CAN'T MAKE PEOPLE DO
  • 00:02:05.080 --> 00:02:06.170
  • WHAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:02:06.170 --> 00:02:07.180
  • YOU CAN'T MAKE YOURSELF DO
  • 00:02:07.180 --> 00:02:08.290
  • WELL.
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:09.240
  • IF YOU'RE TRYING TO CONTROL
  • 00:02:09.240 --> 00:02:11.160
  • EVERYTHING, YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:02:11.160 --> 00:02:12.290
  • BE FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:02:12.290 --> 00:02:14.190
  • YOU HAVE TO TURN IT OVER TO
  • 00:02:14.190 --> 00:02:15.220
  • GOD, DO WHAT YOU CAN, THEN
  • 00:02:15.220 --> 00:02:18.170
  • LET HIM TAKE CARE OF THE
  • 00:02:18.170 --> 00:02:19.230
  • REST.
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:20.250
  • LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO LIVE
  • 00:02:20.250 --> 00:02:22.240
  • FRUSTRATED BECAUSE WE'RE NOT
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:24.180
  • GETTING OUR WAY, FRUSTRATED
  • 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:26.140
  • BECAUSE SOMETHING UNFAIR HAS
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:28.120
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:02:28.120 --> 00:02:29.070
  • GOD WOULDN'T HAVE ALLOWED IT
  • 00:02:29.070 --> 00:02:31.000
  • IF IT WAS GOING TO KEEP YOU
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:32.140
  • FROM YOUR PURPOSE.
  • 00:02:32.140 --> 00:02:34.040
  • IT'S A TEST.
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:35.110
  • ARE YOU GOING TO LET IT STEAL
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:36.260
  • YOUR JOY, LIVE STRESSED OUT,
  • 00:02:36.260 --> 00:02:38.210
  • OR ARE YOU GOING TO BE STILL
  • 00:02:38.210 --> 00:02:40.280
  • AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD?
  • 00:02:40.280 --> 00:02:43.150
  • IF GOD IS NOT CHANGING IT,
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:45.120
  • YOU HAVE TO BE MATURE ENOUGH
  • 00:02:45.120 --> 00:02:47.030
  • TO SAY, "GOD, I DON'T LIKE
  • 00:02:47.030 --> 00:02:48.220
  • IT, BUT I KNOW YOU'VE ALLOWED
  • 00:02:48.220 --> 00:02:50.270
  • IT AND UNTIL YOU CHANGE IT,
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:52.270
  • I'M GOING TO STAY IN PEACE
  • 00:02:52.270 --> 00:02:54.000
  • AND ENJOY MY LIFE."
  • 00:02:54.000 --> 00:02:55.260
  • THE REAL VICTORY IS NOT WHEN
  • 00:02:55.260 --> 00:02:58.060
  • GOD DOES EVERYTHING YOU WANT,
  • 00:02:58.060 --> 00:02:59.240
  • REMOVES ALL YOUR
  • 00:02:59.240 --> 00:03:01.030
  • FRUSTRATIONS, THE REAL
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:02.140
  • VICTORY IS WHEN THOSE THINGS
  • 00:03:02.140 --> 00:03:04.140
  • HAPPEN BUT IT DOESN'T BOTHER
  • 00:03:04.140 --> 00:03:05.190
  • YOU ANYMORE.
  • 00:03:05.190 --> 00:03:07.110
  • YOU'RE AT PEACE.
  • 00:03:07.110 --> 00:03:08.180
  • YOU KNOW GOD IS STILL IN
  • 00:03:08.180 --> 00:03:09.230
  • CONTROL.
  • 00:03:09.230 --> 00:03:10.200
  • MATTHEW 26, JESUS WAS ABOUT
  • 00:03:10.200 --> 00:03:13.140
  • TO BE BETRAYED AND GO TO THE
  • 00:03:13.140 --> 00:03:15.000
  • CROSS.
  • 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:15.280
  • HE WENT WITH HIS DISCIPLES TO
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:17.170
  • A PLACE CALLED GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:03:17.170 --> 00:03:19.230
  • HE WAS SO TROUBLED AND SO
  • 00:03:19.230 --> 00:03:21.130
  • OVERWHELMED, HE ASKED HIS
  • 00:03:21.130 --> 00:03:23.080
  • DISCIPLES TO STAY THERE AND
  • 00:03:23.080 --> 00:03:24.240
  • PRAY FOR HIM.
  • 00:03:24.240 --> 00:03:25.280
  • HE WENT AWAY BY HIMSELF, FELL
  • 00:03:25.280 --> 00:03:28.090
  • ON THE GROUND, SAID, "FATHER,
  • 00:03:28.090 --> 00:03:30.060
  • IF IT'S POSSIBLE, TAKE THIS
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:31.270
  • CUP FROM ME."
  • 00:03:31.270 --> 00:03:33.060
  • A LITTLE WHILE HE WENT BACK
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.140
  • TO CHECK ON HIS DISCIPLES,
  • 00:03:34.140 --> 00:03:36.090
  • HOPING TO GAIN SOME STRENGTH,
  • 00:03:36.090 --> 00:03:37.250
  • SOME ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THEM
  • 00:03:37.250 --> 00:03:39.060
  • BUT WHEN HE SHOWED UP, HE
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:40.250
  • FOUND THAT THEY WERE ALL
  • 00:03:40.250 --> 00:03:42.120
  • SOUND ASLEEP.
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:44.150
  • HE COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:03:44.150 --> 00:03:45.210
  • HE WOKE THEM UP AND SAID,
  • 00:03:45.210 --> 00:03:46.110
  • "GUYS, COULDN'T YOU STAY UP
  • 00:03:46.110 --> 00:03:48.050
  • AND PRAY FOR ME?
  • 00:03:48.050 --> 00:03:49.200
  • THIS IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE
  • 00:03:49.200 --> 00:03:50.190
  • I'VE EVER FACED."
  • 00:03:50.190 --> 00:03:51.260
  • HE WAS KIND OF FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:03:51.260 --> 00:03:53.050
  • HE ASKED THEM AGAIN, EVEN
  • 00:03:53.050 --> 00:03:55.030
  • MORE EMPHATICALLY, PLEASE,
  • 00:03:55.030 --> 00:03:57.140
  • STAY AWAKE.
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:03:58.110
  • THE SPIRIT IS WILLING BUT THE
  • 00:03:58.110 --> 00:03:59.290
  • FLESH IS WEAK, PRAY."
  • 00:03:59.290 --> 00:04:01.280
  • JESUS WENT AWAY AGAIN BY
  • 00:04:01.280 --> 00:04:03.280
  • HIMSELF TO PRAY.
  • 00:04:03.280 --> 00:04:05.120
  • HE THOUGHT FOR SURE THIS TIME
  • 00:04:05.120 --> 00:04:06.200
  • THEY GOT THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:04:06.200 --> 00:04:08.060
  • HE CAME BACK A LITTLE LATER,
  • 00:04:08.060 --> 00:04:09.220
  • SAME THING, STILL SLEEPING.
  • 00:04:09.220 --> 00:04:12.030
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:12.290
  • DISAPPOINTED HE WAS.
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:14.200
  • HE TURNED AROUND, WENT BACK
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:16.050
  • TO PRAY SOME MORE.
  • 00:04:16.050 --> 00:04:17.260
  • THEN HE THOUGHT, "I'LL GO
  • 00:04:17.260 --> 00:04:19.170
  • CHECK ON THEM ONE LAST TIME.
  • 00:04:19.170 --> 00:04:21.110
  • THIS THIRD TIME, I KNOW
  • 00:04:21.110 --> 00:04:22.180
  • THEY'LL BE PRAYING.
  • 00:04:22.180 --> 00:04:23.230
  • AFTER ALL I'VE DONE FOR THEM,
  • 00:04:23.230 --> 00:04:24.270
  • I KNOW THEY'LL BE STANDING IN
  • 00:04:24.270 --> 00:04:26.080
  • FAITH WITH ME."
  • 00:04:26.080 --> 00:04:27.190
  • HE WENT BACK THE THIRD TIME
  • 00:04:27.190 --> 00:04:29.000
  • BUT THEY WERE STILL SLEEPING.
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:31.000
  • THIS TIME HE DIDN'T TRY TO
  • 00:04:31.000 --> 00:04:33.080
  • WAKE THEM UP.
  • 00:04:33.080 --> 00:04:34.160
  • HE DIDN'T TRY TO GET THEM TO
  • 00:04:34.160 --> 00:04:35.250
  • BE FOR HIM.
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:37.210
  • HE LOOKED AT THEM AND SAID,
  • 00:04:37.210 --> 00:04:38.280
  • "SLEEP ON."
  • 00:04:38.280 --> 00:04:40.270
  • HE CAME TO THE POINT WHERE HE
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:42.160
  • DIDN'T LET IT BOTHER HIM
  • 00:04:42.160 --> 00:04:44.030
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:04:44.030 --> 00:04:45.000
  • HE COULD HAVE KEPT WAKING
  • 00:04:45.000 --> 00:04:46.050
  • THEM UP, TRYING TO MAKE IT
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:47.170
  • HAPPEN, BEING FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:04:47.170 --> 00:04:49.100
  • INSTEAD, HE ACCEPTED HE
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:51.240
  • WASN'T GOING TO HAVE THEIR
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:53.090
  • SUPPORT.
  • 00:04:53.090 --> 00:04:54.070
  • HE ACCEPTED IT WASN'T GOING
  • 00:04:54.070 --> 00:04:55.200
  • TO WORK OUT HIS WAY.
  • 00:04:55.200 --> 00:04:57.140
  • HE DIDN'T FIGHT IT.
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:04:59.010
  • HE DIDN'T LET IT FRUSTRATE
  • 00:04:59.010 --> 00:05:00.150
  • HIM ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:00.150 --> 00:05:01.170
  • HE SAID, "SLEEP ON," AND
  • 00:05:01.170 --> 00:05:03.050
  • MOVED FORWARD.
  • 00:05:03.050 --> 00:05:04.200
  • THERE ARE TIMES IN LIFE WHEN
  • 00:05:04.200 --> 00:05:06.200
  • THINGS DON'T WORK OUT THE WAY
  • 00:05:06.200 --> 00:05:08.150
  • WE WANT IT.
  • 00:05:08.150 --> 00:05:09.160
  • THE PEOPLE WE WERE COUNTING
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:11.030
  • ON WEREN'T THERE FOR US.
  • 00:05:11.030 --> 00:05:12.140
  • THE MEDICAL REPORT WASN'T
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:14.010
  • GOOD.
  • 00:05:14.010 --> 00:05:15.010
  • THE DREAM ISN'T HAPPENING ON

  • OUR TIMETABLE.
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.010
  • WE COULD BE FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:05:18.010 --> 00:05:19.230
  • WE DID THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:05:19.230 --> 00:05:21.160
  • WE STAYED IN FAITH BUT IT'S
  • 00:05:21.160 --> 00:05:22.180
  • NOT WORKING OUT.
  • 00:05:22.180 --> 00:05:23.290
  • YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT JESUS
  • 00:05:23.290 --> 00:05:25.210
  • DID, TELL THE DISAPPOINTMENT,
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:27.210
  • TELL THE DELAY, TELL THE
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:29.100
  • FRUSTRATION, "SLEEP ON.
  • 00:05:29.100 --> 00:05:32.000
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BOTHER ME
  • 00:05:32.000 --> 00:05:33.060
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:33.060 --> 00:05:34.150
  • I KNOW GOD IS STILL ON THE
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:35.240
  • THRONE.
  • 00:05:35.240 --> 00:05:36.240
  • I KNOW HE'S FIGHTING MY

  • BATTLES AND HE WILL GET ME TO
  • 00:05:37.260 --> 00:05:39.100
  • WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE."
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:41.130
  • ARE THERE SOME THINGS YOU
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:42.220
  • NEED TO TELL SLEEP ON?
  • 00:05:42.220 --> 00:05:44.240
  • THAT PERSON YOU'VE BEEN

  • HOW HARD YOU TRY, THEY WON'T
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:49.230
  • DO WHAT YOU WANT.
  • 00:05:49.230 --> 00:05:51.090
  • IT'S TIME TO SAY, SLEEP ON.
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:53.210
  • YOU CAN'T CONTROL PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:53.210 --> 00:05:55.120
  • YOU CAN'T MAKE THEM DO WHAT'S
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:56.230
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:05:56.230 --> 00:05:57.240
  • PRAY FOR THEM, BE RESPECTFUL,
  • 00:05:57.240 --> 00:06:00.070
  • BUT DON'T GO THE NEXT
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:01.190
  • 30 YEARS LETTING THEM
  • 00:06:01.190 --> 00:06:03.080
  • FRUSTRATE YOU.
  • 00:06:03.080 --> 00:06:04.160
  • TWO SIMPLE WORDS CAN CHANGE

  • YOUR LIFE, SLEEP ON.
  • 00:06:06.010 --> 00:06:08.150
  • JESUS WANTED HIS DISCIPLES'

  • SUPPORT.
  • 00:06:10.040 --> 00:06:11.020
  • HE DESERVED IT.
  • 00:06:11.020 --> 00:06:12.070
  • HE HAD BEEN GOOD TO THEM BUT
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:13.250
  • SOMETIMES GOD WILL PULL BACK
  • 00:06:13.290 --> 00:06:16.290
  • PEOPLE'S SUPPORT.
  • 00:06:16.290 --> 00:06:18.040
  • HE KNOWS IF THEY'RE THERE ALL
  • 00:06:18.040 --> 00:06:20.040
  • THE TIME, THEN YOU WOULD
  • 00:06:20.040 --> 00:06:21.230
  • BECOME DEPENDENT ON THEM.
  • 00:06:21.230 --> 00:06:24.000
  • YOU WOULD THINK THEY WERE
  • 00:06:24.000 --> 00:06:24.230
  • YOUR SOURCE, THEY WERE YOUR

  • YOU DON'T NEED EVERYONE YOU
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:28.150
  • THINK YOU NEED.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:30.020
  • GOD HAS ALREADY LINED UP THE
  • 00:06:30.020 --> 00:06:31.200
  • RIGHT PEOPLE TO COME INTO
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:33.090
  • YOUR LIFE TO HELP YOU REACH

  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO TRY TO
  • 00:06:39.150 --> 00:06:40.230
  • MANIPULATE, CONVINCE THEM TO

  • BE FOR YOU, CONVINCE THEM TO
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:44.180
  • STAY AWAY.
  • 00:06:44.180 --> 00:06:45.190
  • THEY'LL BE FOR YOU THROUGH

  • THICK AND THIN.
  • 00:06:46.280 --> 00:06:48.110
  • THEY'LL SHOW UP WHEN YOU
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:49.180
  • DIDN'T ASK.
  • 00:06:49.180 --> 00:06:50.160
  • THEY'LL ENCOURAGE YOU WHEN

  • NOBODY ELSE IS AROUND.
  • 00:06:51.290 --> 00:06:53.190
  • BUT SOMETIMES WE'RE BEING
  • 00:06:53.190 --> 00:06:54.280
  • FRUSTRATED BY PEOPLE THAT ARE
  • 00:06:54.280 --> 00:06:56.250
  • NEVER GOING TO BE FOR US.
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:59.020
  • WE'RE SPENDING ALL THIS

  • GOING TO RECOGNIZE IT'S A NEW
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:12.020
  • SEASON AND SAY, "SLEEP ON"?
  • 00:09:12.020 --> 00:09:14.060
  • HERE'S THE KEY, IF THEY
  • 00:09:14.060 --> 00:09:16.190
  • DIDN'T WAKE UP, YOU DON'T
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.130
  • NEED THEM FOR THIS SEASON.
  • 00:09:18.130 --> 00:09:20.140
  • IF THEY'RE NOT GIVING YOU
  • 00:09:20.140 --> 00:09:21.200
  • WHAT THEY USED TO GIVE YOU,
  • 00:09:21.200 --> 00:09:23.140
  • THAT MEANS GOD IS TAKING YOU
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:25.080
  • TO A HIGHER LEVEL.
  • 00:09:25.080 --> 00:09:26.250
  • HE'S WEANING YOU OFF THE

  • SUPPORT, THE ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:09:27.280 --> 00:09:30.090
  • IT'S LIKE A LITTLE BABY, THEY
  • 00:09:30.090 --> 00:09:31.200
  • LOVE TO HAVE THEIR BOTTLE,
  • 00:09:31.200 --> 00:09:33.130
  • MAKES THEM COMFORTABLE, MAKES
  • 00:09:33.130 --> 00:09:35.010
  • THEM FEEL SECURE AND THAT'S
  • 00:09:35.010 --> 00:09:36.220
  • FINE AS LONG AS THEY'RE A
  • 00:09:36.220 --> 00:09:38.080
  • YEAR OR 2 OLD BUT IF THEY'RE
  • 00:09:38.080 --> 00:09:39.270
  • 47 WALKING AROUND WITH THAT
  • 00:09:39.270 --> 00:09:41.190
  • BOTTLE, THAT'S A PROBLEM.
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:43.270
  • BUT AS PARENTS, WHEN WE TAKE
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:45.270
  • THE BOTTLE AWAY FROM OUR
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:46.290
  • CHILDREN, THEY DON'T LIKE IT.
  • 00:09:46.290 --> 00:09:49.120
  • THEY'RE UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:09:49.120 --> 00:09:50.250
  • BUT WE DO IT SO IT WON'T
  • 00:09:50.250 --> 00:09:52.230
  • LIMIT THEIR GROWTH.
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:54.190
  • SOMETIMES GOD WILL MAKE YOU
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:56.220
  • UNCOMFORTABLE.
  • 00:09:56.220 --> 00:09:58.060
  • HE'LL TAKE SOMETHING AWAY
  • 00:09:58.060 --> 00:09:59.140
  • THAT YOU WERE USED TO, A
  • 00:09:59.140 --> 00:10:01.060
  • FRIEND THAT ALWAYS CALLED AND
  • 00:10:01.060 --> 00:10:02.160

  • SOMEWHERE TOGETHER.
  • 00:10:08.050 --> 00:10:09.120
  • IT'S BECAUSE GOD IS WEANING
  • 00:10:09.120 --> 00:10:11.150
  • YOU OFF THAT BOTTLE, SO TO

  • SPEAK.
  • 00:10:12.280 --> 00:10:13.290
  • AS LONG AS YOU'RE DEPENDENT
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:15.180
  • ON PEOPLE, IT WILL LIMIT HOW

  • HIGH YOU CAN GO.
  • 00:10:17.230 --> 00:10:19.220
  • WHEN GOD REMOVES THE SUPPORT,
  • 00:10:19.220 --> 00:10:22.060
  • WHEN HE TAKES WAY SOMEONE

  • THAT YOU WERE USED TO, DON'T
  • 00:10:23.170 --> 00:10:24.290
  • GET MAD AT THEM.
  • 00:10:24.290 --> 00:10:26.150
  • DON'T KEEP TRYING TO WAKE

  • SLEEP.
  • 00:10:28.260 --> 00:10:30.010
  • YOU CAN'T OPEN A DOOR THAT
  • 00:10:30.010 --> 00:10:31.150
  • GOD HAS CLOSED AND THAT
  • 00:10:31.150 --> 00:10:33.100
  • FRIEND THAT'S NOT THERE
  • 00:10:33.100 --> 00:10:34.090
  • ANYMORE, THE DISAPPOINTMENT,
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:36.030
  • YOU MAY NOT LIKE IT, IT MAY
  • 00:10:36.030 --> 00:10:37.230
  • BE PAINFUL BUT IT'S ORDAINED
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:40.050
  • BY GOD.
  • 00:10:40.050 --> 00:10:41.090
  • YOU HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT'S
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:43.070
  • A SIGN YOU'RE COMING UP
  • 00:10:43.070 --> 00:10:44.120
  • HIGHER.
  • 00:10:44.120 --> 00:10:45.070
  • THAT DISCOMFORT MEANS YOU'RE
  • 00:10:45.070 --> 00:10:47.000
  • GOING TO A NEW LEVEL, AND
  • 00:10:47.000 --> 00:10:49.030
  • EVERYONE THAT'S WITH YOU NOW
  • 00:10:49.030 --> 00:10:51.050
  • MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GO WHERE

  • YOU'RE GOING.
  • 00:10:52.260 --> 00:10:54.030
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE
  • 00:10:54.030 --> 00:10:55.070
  • SCAFFOLDING, THEY COME INTO
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:57.100
  • YOUR LIFE FOR A SEASON TO
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:10:59.060
  • HELP YOU REACH A CERTAIN
  • 00:10:59.060 --> 00:11:00.090
  • LEVEL BUT AT SOME POINT, GOD
  • 00:11:00.090 --> 00:11:02.200
  • IS GOING TO REMOVE THE
  • 00:11:02.200 --> 00:11:03.230
  • SCAFFOLDING SO YOU CAN SHINE.
  • 00:11:03.230 --> 00:11:06.180
  • IT'S NOT THAT THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:11:06.180 --> 00:11:07.160
  • GOOD PEOPLE, BUT THEIR PART
  • 00:11:07.160 --> 00:11:09.180
  • IN YOUR STORY IS OVER.
  • 00:11:09.180 --> 00:11:11.140
  • GOD'S TAKING YOU TO A HIGHER

  • QUIT BEING FRUSTRATED BY
  • 00:11:13.240 --> 00:11:15.240
  • SOMEBODY THAT'S NOT
  • 00:11:15.240 --> 00:11:16.200
  • SUPPORTING YOU LIKE THEY USED
  • 00:11:16.200 --> 00:11:18.040
  • TO.
  • 00:11:18.040 --> 00:11:18.220
  • "WHY DON'T THEY CALL ME
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:19.110
  • ANYMORE, JOEL?
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:20.090
  • WHY DON'T THEY COMPLIMENT

  • ME?"
  • 00:11:21.110 --> 00:11:22.010
  • THE RIGHT ATTITUDE IS, "I
  • 00:11:22.010 --> 00:11:23.000
  • LOVE YOU, I RESPECT YOU, BUT
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:25.110
  • I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE YOUR
  • 00:11:25.110 --> 00:11:26.120
  • SUPPORT, YOUR COMPLIMENTS,

  • YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT,
  • 00:11:27.220 --> 00:11:28.240
  • SLEEP ON."
  • 00:11:28.240 --> 00:11:31.060
  • WE SPEND TOO MUCH TIME
  • 00:11:31.060 --> 00:11:33.060
  • TRYING TO GET PEOPLE'S
  • 00:11:33.060 --> 00:11:34.130
  • APPROVAL, TRYING TO GET
  • 00:11:34.130 --> 00:11:35.230
  • THEM TO VALIDATE US, THEN
  • 00:11:35.230 --> 00:11:37.070
  • WE'LL FEEL GOOD
  • 00:11:37.070 --> 00:11:38.040
  • ABOUT OURSELVES.
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:39.120
  • THE PROBLEM WITH
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:40.130
  • GETTING YOUR VALIDATION
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:41.180
  • FROM PEOPLE IS PEOPLE
  • 00:11:41.180 --> 00:11:43.050
  • CAN CHANGE THEIR MIND.
  • 00:11:43.050 --> 00:11:45.060
  • ONE MOMENT, PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:11:45.060 --> 00:11:46.100
  • CHEERING FOR JESUS,
  • 00:11:46.100 --> 00:11:47.270
  • SHOUTING, "HOSANNA,"
  • 00:11:47.270 --> 00:11:49.170
  • WAVING PALM BRANCHES.
  • 00:11:49.170 --> 00:11:51.160
  • A FEW DAYS LATER, THOSE
  • 00:11:51.160 --> 00:11:52.180
  • SAME PEOPLE WERE SHOUTING,
  • 00:11:52.180 --> 00:11:53.270
  • "CRUCIFY HIM.".
  • 00:11:53.270 --> 00:11:55.270
  • PEOPLE CAN HAVE A SHORT MEMORY.
  • 00:11:55.270 --> 00:11:58.030
  • PEOPLE CAN GO TO SLEEP,
  • 00:11:58.030 --> 00:11:59.200
  • AND IF YOU'RE GETTING
  • 00:11:59.200 --> 00:12:00.160
  • YOUR VALUE BASED ON
  • 00:12:00.160 --> 00:12:01.260
  • WHAT PEOPLE GIVE YOU,
  • 00:12:01.260 --> 00:12:03.050
  • HOW MUCH THEY COMPLIMENT YOU,
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:04.170
  • THEN, IF FOR SOME REASON
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:05.250
  • THEY STOP DOING THAT,
  • 00:12:05.250 --> 00:12:07.140
  • YOU'LL FORGET WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:12:07.140 --> 00:12:09.150
  • YOUR SELF-WORTH
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:10.090
  • IS COMING FROM THEM.
  • 00:12:10.090 --> 00:12:11.190
  • QUIT RELYING ON PEOPLE
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:13.070
  • AND GO TO GOD.
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:14.080
  • YOU DON'T NEED THEIR APPROVAL.
  • 00:12:14.080 --> 00:12:15.270
  • YOU HAVE GOD'S APPROVAL.
  • 00:12:15.270 --> 00:12:18.080
  • BUT IN LIFE, WE ALL GO
  • 00:12:18.080 --> 00:12:19.250
  • THROUGH GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:12:19.250 --> 00:12:21.120
  • WE ALL HAVE DISAPPOINTMENTS
  • 00:12:21.120 --> 00:12:23.000
  • AND THINGS WE DON'T
  • 00:12:23.000 --> 00:12:23.290
  • UNDERSTAND, BUT I'VE LEARNED
  • 00:12:23.290 --> 00:12:26.030
  • GOD GIVES US GRACE FOR EVERY
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:28.020
  • GETHSEMANE, GRACE FOR EVERY
  • 00:12:28.020 --> 00:12:30.080
  • UNFAIR SITUATION.
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:32.070
  • IT'S VERY FREEING WHEN YOU
  • 00:12:32.070 --> 00:12:33.260
  • CAN LOOK AT THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:12:33.260 --> 00:12:34.280
  • HAVE LEFT.
  • 00:12:34.280 --> 00:12:35.280
  • YOU CAN LOOK AT THE
  • 00:12:35.280 --> 00:12:36.170
  • DISAPPOINTMENT AND SAY,
  • 00:12:36.170 --> 00:12:37.290
  • "SLEEP ON."
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:39.170
  • AMAZING THINGS ARE UP AHEAD
  • 00:12:39.170 --> 00:12:41.210
  • IF YOU DON'T GIVE UP IN
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:43.050
  • GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:12:43.050 --> 00:12:44.190
  • YES, THERE WILL BE CROSSES TO
  • 00:12:44.190 --> 00:12:46.040
  • BEAR, BETRAYALS, SETBACKS,
  • 00:12:46.040 --> 00:12:48.240
  • BUT CAN I ENCOURAGE YOU?
  • 00:12:48.240 --> 00:12:50.030
  • IF YOU KEEP MOVING FORWARD,
  • 00:12:50.030 --> 00:12:52.030
  • THERE WILL BE RESURRECTIONS,
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:53.230
  • THERE WILL BE NEW BEGINNINGS,
  • 00:12:53.230 --> 00:12:55.080
  • TIMES WHERE GOD PAYS YOU BACK
  • 00:12:55.080 --> 00:12:57.030
  • FOR WHAT WAS UNFAIR, TIMES
  • 00:12:57.030 --> 00:12:59.040
  • WHERE GOD CATAPULTS YOU YEARS
  • 00:12:59.040 --> 00:13:01.060
  • AHEAD.
  • 00:13:01.060 --> 00:13:02.070
  • DON'T GET STUCK IN
  • 00:13:02.070 --> 00:13:04.020
  • GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:04.290
  • DON'T LET THE SICKNESS CAUSE
  • 00:13:04.290 --> 00:13:06.200
  • YOU TO BECOME BITTER.
  • 00:13:06.200 --> 00:13:08.040
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:13:08.040 --> 00:13:09.120
  • IT'S NOT FAIR.
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:10.240
  • YOU COULD SAY, "GOD, WHY?
  • 00:13:10.240 --> 00:13:12.100
  • THIS DOESN'T MAKE SENSE," OR
  • 00:13:12.100 --> 00:13:14.040
  • YOU CAN LOOK AT THE
  • 00:13:14.040 --> 00:13:14.230
  • FRUSTRATION, THE
  • 00:13:14.230 --> 00:13:15.270
  • DISCOURAGEMENT, THE FEAR, AND
  • 00:13:15.270 --> 00:13:17.210
  • SAY, "SLEEP ON.
  • 00:13:17.210 --> 00:13:19.030
  • I'M NOT GOING TO DRAG THROUGH
  • 00:13:19.030 --> 00:13:20.100
  • THIS DAY DEFEATED.
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:21.190
  • I MAY BE IN GETHSEMANE BUT I
  • 00:13:21.190 --> 00:13:23.150
  • KNOW A RESURRECTION IS
  • 00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:24.230
  • COMING."
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:26.010
  • GETHSEMANE DOESN'T HAVE TO
  • 00:13:26.010 --> 00:13:27.170
  • STOP YOU.
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:29.000
  • GOD WOULDN'T HAVE ALLOWED IT
  • 00:13:29.000 --> 00:13:30.250
  • IF IT WASN'T GOING TO SOMEHOW
  • 00:13:30.250 --> 00:13:32.220
  • MOVE YOU TOWARDS YOUR

  • PURPOSE.
  • 00:13:33.210 --> 00:13:35.060
  • THE NEXT TIME THAT CO-WORKER
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:36.150
  • IS RUDE TO YOU, INSTEAD OF
  • 00:13:36.150 --> 00:13:38.050
  • BEING UPSET, JUST SMILE AND
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:39.260
  • SAY, "SLEEP ON."
  • 00:13:39.260 --> 00:13:42.120
  • WHEN THAT CAR CUTS YOU OFF IN
  • 00:13:42.120 --> 00:13:43.240
  • TRAFFIC, INSTEAD OF SAYING
  • 00:13:43.240 --> 00:13:45.090
  • WHAT YOU NORMALLY SAY, TRY A
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:47.040
  • NEW APPROACH, "SLEEP ON."
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:49.190
  • YOU'RE NOT APPROVING THEIR

  • YOU'RE NOT ENABLING THEM,
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:53.150
  • YOU'RE SIMPLY SAYING, "YOUR

  • FUTURE."
  • 00:14:03.250 --> 00:14:05.040
  • MAYBE YOU NEED TO TELL YOUR

  • "SLEEP ON."
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:18.270
  • I'VE LEARNED YOU'RE EITHER

  • FEEDING YOUR HISTORY OR
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:22.110
  • YOU'RE FEEDING YOUR DESTINY,

  • 00:15:23.230 --> 00:15:24.260
  • HIS MARRIAGE OF MANY YEARS
  • 00:15:24.260 --> 00:15:26.090
  • HAD ENDED AND A VERY
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:27.250
  • SUCCESSFUL CAREER WENT
  • 00:15:27.250 --> 00:15:29.080
  • DOWNHILL.
  • 00:15:29.080 --> 00:15:29.270
  • EVERYTHING FELL APART.
  • 00:15:29.270 --> 00:15:31.130
  • HE WAS SO DISCOURAGED, HE WAS
  • 00:15:31.130 --> 00:15:33.040
  • GOING TO END HIS LIFE.
  • 00:15:33.040 --> 00:15:34.240
  • HE GOT IN HIS CAR AND WAS
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:36.020
  • DRIVING TO A REMOTE PLACE.
  • 00:15:36.020 --> 00:15:38.070
  • HE TURNED THE RADIO ON AND
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:40.000
  • JUST SO HAPPENED TO TUNE INTO
  • 00:15:40.000 --> 00:15:41.100
  • OUR SIRIUS XM STATION.
  • 00:15:41.100 --> 00:15:43.150
  • I WAS TALKING ABOUT NOT
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:44.200
  • LOOKING BACK, NOT RELIVING
  • 00:15:44.200 --> 00:15:46.140
  • THE HURTS AND FAILURES, AND
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:47.280
  • HOW GOD HAS GOOD THINGS UP
  • 00:15:47.280 --> 00:15:49.140
  • AHEAD.
  • 00:15:49.140 --> 00:15:50.030
  • HE SAID WHEN HE HEARD THAT,
  • 00:15:50.030 --> 00:15:52.100
  • IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY BREATHED
  • 00:15:52.100 --> 00:15:54.070
  • NEW LIFE INTO HIS SPIRIT.
  • 00:15:54.070 --> 00:15:56.100
  • STRONGHOLDS IN HIS MIND WERE
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:58.080
  • BROKEN.
  • 00:15:58.080 --> 00:15:59.070
  • HE TURNED AROUND, WENT BACK
  • 00:15:59.070 --> 00:16:00.170
  • HOME AND TODAY HE'S BACK ON
  • 00:16:00.170 --> 00:16:02.100
  • TRACK LIVING A LIFE OF
  • 00:16:02.100 --> 00:16:03.220
  • VICTORY.
  • 00:16:03.220 --> 00:16:04.250
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:16:04.250 --> 00:16:05.150
  • HE QUIT FEEDING HIS HISTORY
  • 00:16:05.150 --> 00:16:07.180
  • AND HE STARTED FEEDING HIS
  • 00:16:07.180 --> 00:16:09.160
  • DESTINY.
  • 00:16:09.160 --> 00:16:10.250
  • IF YOU FEED YOUR HISTORY LONG
  • 00:16:10.250 --> 00:16:12.130
  • ENOUGH, IT WILL PULL YOU INTO
  • 00:16:12.130 --> 00:16:14.110
  • DEPRESSION, AND THE ENEMY
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:16.080
  • WOULD LOVE TO KEEP YOU SO
  • 00:16:16.080 --> 00:16:17.140
  • FOCUSED ON YOUR HURTS AND

  • WHAT DIDN'T WORK OUT THAT
  • 00:16:19.060 --> 00:16:20.290
  • YOU'RE TOO DISCOURAGED TO
  • 00:16:20.290 --> 00:16:22.050
  • MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:16:22.050 --> 00:16:23.120
  • DON'T FALL INTO THAT TRAP.
  • 00:16:23.120 --> 00:16:25.030
  • YOU WOULDN'T BE ALIVE UNLESS
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:26.240
  • GOD HAD SOMETHING AMAZING IN

  • FRONT OF YOU.
  • 00:16:28.090 --> 00:16:29.140
  • YOU MAY BE IN GETHSEMANE, A

  • PLACE OF DISCOURAGEMENT,

  • SAY, "SLEEP ON" AND START
  • 00:16:34.080 --> 00:16:35.270
  • THINKING SOME NEW THOUGHTS,
  • 00:16:35.270 --> 00:16:37.060

  • RESTORATION.
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:42.000
  • A FEW YEARS AGO, I WAS FLYING
  • 00:16:42.000 --> 00:16:44.120
  • TO AN EVENT WITH SOME OF OUR

  • THE WINDOW, AND I PULLED AND
  • 00:16:58.080 --> 00:17:00.060
  • PULLED BUT I COULDN'T GET IT
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:01.090
  • OPEN.
  • 00:17:01.090 --> 00:17:01.290
  • MY FRIEND WAS SITTING ACROSS

  • OF FRUSTRATED.
  • 00:17:24.280 --> 00:17:26.060
  • ABOUT THAT TIME, I LOOKED UP
  • 00:17:26.060 --> 00:17:28.110
  • AND OVER THE WINDOW WHERE WE
  • 00:17:28.110 --> 00:17:30.030
  • HAD BEEN PULLING, THERE WAS A

  • EMERGENCY EXIT ONLY."
  • 00:17:37.040 --> 00:17:40.040
  • SOMETIMES WHAT WE'RE
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.230
  • FRUSTRATED ABOUT IS GOD
  • 00:17:41.230 --> 00:17:43.230
  • KEEPING US FROM REAL
  • 00:17:43.230 --> 00:17:45.040
  • FRUSTRATION.

  • 00:18:00.070 --> 00:18:01.190
  • THE LONGER I LIVE, THE EASIER
  • 00:18:01.190 --> 00:18:03.200
  • IT IS FOR ME TO SAY, "SLEEP

  • HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING.
  • 00:18:14.080 --> 00:18:16.040

  • IT AND YOU CAN'T SEE IT.
  • 00:18:21.190 --> 00:18:23.210
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY GOD
  • 00:18:23.210 --> 00:18:25.010
  • WON'T ANSWER THE PRAYER, WHY
  • 00:18:25.010 --> 00:18:26.140
  • THE DREAM IS TAKING SO LONG,
  • 00:18:26.140 --> 00:18:28.090
  • AND WHY THAT GUY AT WORK YOU

  • HE ACTS LIKE HE'S DEAD.
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:38.170
  • MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE GOD CAN
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:41.030
  • SEE SOMETHING YOU CAN'T SEE.
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:43.140
  • MAYBE UNDER HIS SHIRT IS AN

  • IF HE'S NOT GIVING WHAT YOU

  • WANT, THAT MEANS HE HAS
  • 00:18:55.040 --> 00:18:56.180
  • SOMETHING BETTER.

  • HE LOVES YOU TOO MUCH TO LET

  • YOU MISS YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:01.230
  • A COUPLE OF YEARS AFTER I
  • 00:19:01.230 --> 00:19:04.070
  • TOOK OVER FOR MY FATHER, THE

  • NEEDED A LARGER AUDITORIUM.
  • 00:19:07.200 --> 00:19:09.220

  • HE SAID WE DIDN'T NEED TO

  • SIGN THE CONTRACT RIGHT THEN.
  • 00:19:24.200 --> 00:19:26.140
  • WE COULD DO SOME PRELIMINARY

  • SAMPLES WHILE THE PAPERWORK
  • 00:19:29.120 --> 00:19:30.260
  • WAS GETTING TAKEN CARE OF.
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:32.210
  • SEVERAL MONTHS LATER, WE WENT

  • 00:19:44.190 --> 00:19:46.260
  • I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:48.040
  • HE DIDN'T KEEP HIS WORD.
  • 00:19:48.040 --> 00:19:49.240
  • I WENT HOME SO DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:19:49.240 --> 00:19:51.190
  • I TOLD VICTORIA WHAT HAPPENED

  • HE CLOSED THIS DOOR FOR A

  • 00:20:02.160 --> 00:20:03.160
  • SHE STARTED PREACHING TO ME
  • 00:20:03.160 --> 00:20:05.010
  • ONE OF MY OWN SERMONS.

  • SEVERAL MONTHS LATER, WE
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:25.210
  • FOUND ANOTHER PIECE OF

  • 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:28.070
  • THAN THE FIRST ONE.
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:29.190
  • WE WENT TO CLOSE ON IT, THE
  • 00:20:29.190 --> 00:20:31.060
  • SAME THING HAPPENED.
  • 00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:32.240
  • THEY SOLD IT OUT FROM UNDER
  • 00:20:32.240 --> 00:20:34.090
  • US.
  • 00:20:34.090 --> 00:20:35.020
  • IF YOU DON'T PASS THE TEST
  • 00:20:35.020 --> 00:20:36.120
  • THE FIRST TIME, YOU GET TO
  • 00:20:36.120 --> 00:20:37.230
  • TAKE IT AGAIN.
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:39.160
  • THIS TIME I SAID, "GOD, I'M
  • 00:20:39.160 --> 00:20:41.030
  • GLAD THEY SOLD THE PROPERTY.
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:42.170
  • I DIDN'T WANT IT IN THE FIRST
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:43.190
  • PLACE."
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:45.200
  • GOD KNEW I WAS LYING, BUT IT
  • 00:20:45.200 --> 00:20:46.250
  • FELT GOOD.
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:47.160
  • BUT 6 MONTHS LATER, A FRIEND
  • 00:20:47.200 --> 00:20:50.200
  • CALLED SAID, JOEL, "THE
  • 00:20:50.200 --> 00:20:52.170
  • HOUSTON ROCKETS BASKETBALL
  • 00:20:52.170 --> 00:20:54.030
  • TEAM IS MOVING OUT OF THE
  • 00:20:54.030 --> 00:20:55.070
  • COMPAQ CENTER, THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:20:55.070 --> 00:20:56.240
  • A PERFECT PLACE FOR
  • 00:20:56.240 --> 00:20:58.000
  • LAKEWOOD."
  • 00:20:58.000 --> 00:20:58.260
  • WHEN HE SAID THAT, SOMETHING
  • 00:20:58.260 --> 00:21:00.130
  • CAME ALIVE ON THE INSIDE.
  • 00:21:00.130 --> 00:21:02.150
  • I KNEW THAT'S WHY GOD HAD
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:03.280
  • CLOSED THOSE DOORS.
  • 00:21:03.280 --> 00:21:05.100
  • HE HAD SOMETHING BIGGER,
  • 00:21:05.100 --> 00:21:06.080
  • BETTER.
  • 00:21:06.080 --> 00:21:07.090
  • I NEVER DREAMED WE COULD BE
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:08.130
  • THE COMPAQ CENTER.
  • 00:21:08.130 --> 00:21:09.200
  • THINGS FELL INTO PLACE, HERE
  • 00:21:09.200 --> 00:21:11.060
  • WE ARE TODAY.
  • 00:21:11.060 --> 00:21:12.090
  • WHAT AM I SAYING?
  • 00:21:12.090 --> 00:21:13.160
  • THE THINGS YOU'RE TEMPTED TO
  • 00:21:13.160 --> 00:21:14.250
  • BE FRUSTRATED ABOUT TODAY, IF
  • 00:21:14.250 --> 00:21:17.010
  • YOU WILL STAY IN FAITH, ONE
  • 00:21:17.010 --> 00:21:19.020
  • DAY YOU'LL LOOK BACK AND SAY
  • 00:21:19.020 --> 00:21:21.010
  • LIKE ME, "WOW GOD, YOU OUTDID
  • 00:21:21.040 --> 00:21:24.040
  • YOURSELF.
  • 00:21:24.040 --> 00:21:25.200
  • I NEVER DREAMED I'D MEET
  • 00:21:25.200 --> 00:21:27.020
  • SOMEBODY THIS GREAT.
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:28.210
  • I NEVER DREAMED I'D FEEL THIS
  • 00:21:28.210 --> 00:21:30.000
  • HEALTHY.
  • 00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:30.270
  • I NEVER DREAMED YOU'D TAKE ME
  • 00:21:30.270 --> 00:21:32.070
  • THIS FAR."
  • 00:21:32.070 --> 00:21:33.020
  • GOD'S PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE IS
  • 00:21:33.020 --> 00:21:34.250
  • SO MUCH BIGGER THAN YOUR
  • 00:21:34.250 --> 00:21:36.030
  • OWN.
  • 00:21:36.030 --> 00:21:37.020
  • THE REAL QUESTION IS, WHAT
  • 00:21:37.020 --> 00:21:39.060
  • WILL YOU DO IN GETHSEMANE
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:40.130
  • WHEN IT'S NOT WORKING OUT
  • 00:21:40.130 --> 00:21:42.120
  • YOUR WAY, WHEN YOUR FRIENDS
  • 00:21:42.120 --> 00:21:44.020
  • AREN'T THERE FOR YOU, WHEN
  • 00:21:44.020 --> 00:21:45.090
  • THE CONTRACT DOESN'T GO
  • 00:21:45.090 --> 00:21:46.130
  • THROUGH, WHEN THE MEDICAL
  • 00:21:46.130 --> 00:21:47.150
  • REPORT IS NOT GOOD?
  • 00:21:47.150 --> 00:21:49.020
  • TOO MANY PEOPLE DON'T SEE
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:50.220
  • THEIR RESURRECTION BECAUSE
  • 00:21:50.220 --> 00:21:52.230
  • THEY GET BITTER IN
  • 00:21:52.230 --> 00:21:54.010
  • GETHSEMANE.
  • 00:21:54.010 --> 00:21:55.110
  • "GOD, WHY DID THEY FALL
  • 00:21:55.110 --> 00:21:56.100
  • ASLEEP?
  • 00:21:56.100 --> 00:21:57.020
  • WHY DID THEY SELL IT OUT FROM
  • 00:21:57.020 --> 00:21:58.180
  • UNDER US?"
  • 00:21:58.180 --> 00:21:59.150
  • GETHSEMANE IS THE REAL TEST.
  • 00:21:59.150 --> 00:22:02.020
  • WE LIKE WHEN EVERYTHING'S
  • 00:22:02.020 --> 00:22:03.060
  • GOING GREAT BUT THAT'S NOT
  • 00:22:03.060 --> 00:22:04.280
  • WHEN WE GROW THE MOST.
  • 00:22:04.280 --> 00:22:06.120
  • GETHSEMANE IS WHERE YOU CAN
  • 00:22:06.120 --> 00:22:07.290
  • BE PROMOTED.
  • 00:22:07.290 --> 00:22:09.080
  • GOD IS SEEING WHAT YOU'RE
  • 00:22:09.080 --> 00:22:10.150
  • MADE OF.
  • 00:22:10.150 --> 00:22:11.070
  • HE'S SEEING IF YOU'RE READY.
  • 00:22:11.070 --> 00:22:13.020
  • IF YOU'LL STAY IN PEACE, IF
  • 00:22:13.020 --> 00:22:14.190
  • YOU'LL BE STILL AND KNOW THAT
  • 00:22:14.190 --> 00:22:16.090
  • HE IS GOD, THEN HE'LL TAKE
  • 00:22:16.090 --> 00:22:17.290
  • YOU INTO YOUR RESURRECTION.
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:20.030
  • THE WAY YOU KNOW YOU'RE READY
  • 00:22:20.030 --> 00:22:21.110
  • TO BE PROMOTED IS NOT THAT
  • 00:22:21.110 --> 00:22:23.020
  • GOD HAS REMOVED ALL YOUR
  • 00:22:23.020 --> 00:22:24.150
  • DIFFICULTIES BUT YOU DON'T
  • 00:22:24.150 --> 00:22:26.150
  • LET THEM FRUSTRATE YOU
  • 00:22:26.150 --> 00:22:27.210
  • ANYMORE.
  • 00:22:27.210 --> 00:22:29.000
  • YOU'VE LEARNED THIS PRINCIPLE:
  • 00:22:29.000 --> 00:22:30.120
  • TWO SIMPLE WORDS,
  • 00:22:30.120 --> 00:22:31.280
  • "SLEEP ON."
  • 00:22:31.280 --> 00:22:33.200
  • MAYBE THESE TWO WORDS COULD
  • 00:22:33.200 --> 00:22:35.160
  • HELP YOU GET YOUR JOY BACK.
  • 00:22:35.160 --> 00:22:37.120
  • TWO WORDS COULD HELP YOU
  • 00:22:37.120 --> 00:22:38.230
  • SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT.
  • 00:22:38.230 --> 00:22:39.260
  • TWO WORDS COULD
  • 00:22:39.260 --> 00:22:40.180
  • BRING YOU PEACE:
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:41.140
  • "SLEEP ON.".
  • 00:22:41.140 --> 00:22:42.140
  • I READ ABOUT A LADY THAT WAS
  • 00:22:42.140 --> 00:22:43.150
  • COMPLAINING ABOUT EVERYTHING
  • 00:22:43.150 --> 00:22:45.020
  • THAT WENT WRONG THAT DAY AND
  • 00:22:45.020 --> 00:22:46.240
  • SHE SAID, "GOD, WHY DID YOU
  • 00:22:46.240 --> 00:22:47.290
  • LET SO MANY BAD THINGS
  • 00:22:47.290 --> 00:22:49.110
  • HAPPEN?
  • 00:22:49.110 --> 00:22:50.090
  • MY ALARM DIDN'T GO OFF, AND I
  • 00:22:50.090 --> 00:22:52.030
  • WAS LATE TO WORK.
  • 00:22:52.030 --> 00:22:53.240
  • AT LUNCH THEY MADE THE WRONG
  • 00:22:53.240 --> 00:22:55.010
  • SANDWICH AND I HAD TO SEND IT
  • 00:22:55.010 --> 00:22:56.110
  • BACK.
  • 00:22:56.110 --> 00:22:57.110
  • DRIVING HOME, MY CELL PHONE
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:22:58.210
  • DROPPED THE CALL IN THE
  • 00:22:58.210 --> 00:22:59.280
  • MIDDLE OF THE CONVERSATION.
  • 00:22:59.280 --> 00:23:01.280
  • TO TOP IT OFF WHEN I GOT
  • 00:23:01.280 --> 00:23:03.000
  • HOME, I WANTED TO PUT MY FEET
  • 00:23:03.000 --> 00:23:04.220
  • IN THE FOOT MASSAGER BUT IT
  • 00:23:04.220 --> 00:23:06.040
  • WOULDN'T TURN ON."
  • 00:23:06.040 --> 00:23:07.130
  • GOD SAID, "ALL RIGHT, LET ME
  • 00:23:07.130 --> 00:23:08.130
  • GO DOWN THE LIST.
  • 00:23:08.130 --> 00:23:09.230
  • YOU ALARM DIDN'T GO OFF
  • 00:23:09.230 --> 00:23:11.140
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS A DRUNK
  • 00:23:11.140 --> 00:23:12.140
  • DRIVER ON THE ROAD.
  • 00:23:12.140 --> 00:23:13.280
  • I DELAYED YOU ON PURPOSE SO
  • 00:23:13.280 --> 00:23:15.210
  • YOU WOULDN'T BE HARMED.
  • 00:23:15.210 --> 00:23:17.070
  • YOU HAD TO SEND YOUR SANDWICH
  • 00:23:17.070 --> 00:23:18.130
  • BACK BECAUSE THE FIRST PERSON
  • 00:23:18.130 --> 00:23:20.010
  • THAT MADE IT WASN'T FEELING
  • 00:23:20.010 --> 00:23:21.240
  • WELL.
  • 00:23:21.240 --> 00:23:22.190
  • I DIDN'T WANT YOU TO CATCH
  • 00:23:22.190 --> 00:23:23.210
  • WHAT THEY HAD SO I HAD

  • ONE.
  • 00:23:26.090 --> 00:23:27.050
  • THE CELL PHONE DROPPED A CALL
  • 00:23:27.050 --> 00:23:28.290
  • BECAUSE THAT PERSON WAS ABOUT
  • 00:23:28.290 --> 00:23:30.170
  • TO FILL YOU WITH GOSSIP AND I
  • 00:23:30.170 --> 00:23:32.070
  • DIDN'T YOU TO BE

  • 00:23:34.210 --> 00:23:36.280
  • IT, IF YOU WOULD HAVE TURNED
  • 00:23:36.280 --> 00:23:38.090
  • IT ON, IT WOULD BE KNOCKED
  • 00:23:38.090 --> 00:23:39.180
  • OUT THE POWER AND I DIDN'T
  • 00:23:39.180 --> 00:23:41.060

  • COULD IT BE WHAT'S
  • 00:23:44.270 --> 00:23:46.080
  • FRUSTRATING YOU IS REALLY THE
